Prince William has qualified as an Operational Search and Rescue Captain. Clarence House says the Duke of Cambridge, known as Flight Lieutenant Wales, has previously only co-piloted RAF Sea King helicopters but will now be able to command operations. He completed two days of ground and air-based tests to achieve the qualification, following two years of flying experience. Prince William joined C Flight, 22 Squadron at RAF Valley in Anglesey in September 2010. His Commanding Officer, Wing Commander Mark Dunlop, says Flight Lieutenant Wales has demonstrated the required standards needed for the award of Operation Captaincy.
